I think that pinch to zoom looks way awesome as a wow feature to show off to friends. I originally came to this forum looking for a way to get it in more apps than just picsay. But as i thought about it, i realized that double tap to zoom in combo with the zoom buttons is superior to pinch to zoom from a practical stand point. Reasons: 1. Your driving and using nav, and you want to zoom in on the map, it is way easier to tap twice than pinch. 2. You are doing anything where one of your hands is dirty/occupied (eating for example) you can easily zoom on your browser/pictures with one hand by tapping with your thumb, where pinching almost requires you to hold the phone in one hand and zoom in the other. There are countless situations where a quick double tap is far more convenient than pinch to zoom. I think the best solution would be to have BOTH systems at the same time, but i do not think that i would give up my double tap to zoom for pinch to zoom any more now that i have actually thought about it and gotten over the wow factor that pinch to zoom offers.
